Bit of a trek to get to this branch from Piccadilly Circus but I suppose with it being one of the most northern London Nando's it can't really be helped.

Got there just after 3pm and though I wasn't greeted straight away, I was able to pick a table that was free at first sight. The lady came from behind the til to greet me at the same time as someone else but I was already getting the stick to take to the table. I didn't need the menu as it would be the 600calorie meal again (can't wait til this diet is over) and she came to take my order.

Used the loo before my meal and it was a bad idea. This is a small branch and the toilets are at the back of it. You open one door into a short dark hallway then push the correct sex door leading into a brighter toilet area. Has the light blown there as it wasn't a nice feeling? The first toilet I went to was blocked and nearly over flowing.. How often are they checked because clearly not enough. The good thing about the two cubicles is that they both have sinks inside them for hand washing however it does make the toilets very cramp and you have to manoeuvre yourself so as to jot get hurt or squished.

The food arrived in 9 minutes but whilst saucy, the chicken breast was a little dry. Such a small piece also which I would never order as I don't have an issue with meat with bones in. The one and only time I had the thighs I thought that was a small portion also. The mash was a slop, it looked water filled and had minimal taste but it was hot. I preferred yesterday's version to this one and I became bored whilst eating it.

The only entertainment I had was that a group if five girls came in wanting a table. Not sure what number she gave the host but she became flustered and everyone started running around. Looked like the Pastor from the local church said 'Nando's on me' and everyone left church to get there. It was either for 18-20 people and there was not enough space in this branch for that. My table for 2 wasn't gonna help either.

I wish this branch was bigger. I don't remember much else about it.
